Here is a wonderful tooth from an extinct Plesiosaur. This Elasmosaurus tooth is from the Cretaceous deposits of Morocco. Plesiosaurs were large, vicious marine reptiles. They had extremely long necks and fairly lengthy tails and swam by means of legs and feet that had developed into oarlike paddles (like the "Loch Ness Monster") . This tooth is wonderfully 3-dimensional and beautifully preserved. The corrugated, dark-colored enamel is excellent, and the tip exhibits almost no wear from use, which is quite interesting. This long, curved tooth still has a portion of the root intact. The fossil has superb color and contrasts well with the sandstone matrix. The tooth is beautifully showcased on the block of sandstone - NATURAL, NOT COMPOSITED on the plate. There is also a fossil vertebra imbedded in the block of rock. This is a top quality example of a Plesiosaur tooth from the Time of the Dinosaurs.
